It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved wife, mother, sister and friend. Following a courageous battle with cancer, Marion passed away peacefully on December 1, 2012 with her husband and daughters by her side. She is survived by her dear husband Garry, her adored children Mandi Anson (Burnett) and Nicole Bembridges (Burnett), her treasured grandchildren, Haley, Skye, Bodhi, Brayden and Dane, as well as her brothers Allen, Ralph and Dennis and sister Andreen.

Marion was born in Bawlf, Alberta January 3, 1948 and spent most of her adult life in Prince Rupert and on Vancouver Island. She was an avid reader, loved running, hiking and spending time outdoors, especially at the ocean but most of all loved time with her beloved grandchildren. Marion had a great love of family and friends. She touched the lives of everyone she met and will be greatly missed!

The family would like to express their sincere appreciation and gratitude for all the love and support Marion received over the past 9 months. It has been beyond amazing to see just how many dear friends and family were in her life. All the love is what got her through each day!

A Celebration of Life will be held at Garry and Marion's home, to which all are welcome, Sunday December 9th 1:00pm to 4:00pm. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her name to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the BC Cancer Foundation.
